Our stay at the Gran Melia Palacio de los Duques was outstanding. The hotel and rooms are beyond beautiful! The location is terrific! Everyone we encountered working at the hotel was pleasant, professional and gracious. We really enjoyed the RedLevel area and enjoyed relaxing time with our family there. The concierge in the RedLevel worked to help us find another restaurant choice different than what we had planned. We loved Madrid and staying at this elegant hotel made us love Madrid even more!
